    I plan on helping my sister show some meat turkeys and my RP pair this upcoming fair. But all I know about is how to show my RPs. But I dont know anything about showing turkeys for meat...Please help!
    What would be the best breed to get?
    When would be the best time to get the turkeys?
    Should I get 2 so I can take the bigger of the 2?
    What is the best thing to feed a turkey for meat?
    Where would be the best place to get the turkeys?
    Any other info would be great!!
